The Other One and The Eleven highlight a devastating show.

Subject: The magnificent seven, indeed...
I guess if you're the first after Islam_Sucks in a review you got to eventually give your two cents, so...

....uh, remember Bogart in "Casablanca"? He said, "I don't mind a parasite. I object to a cut-rate one." To me, Islam old boy, you fit that mold to a T on your omnipresent trolling of the archives, and I'll just leave it at that.

Now, *to the show*....but these Fillmore shows are almost the most pointless of all Grateful Dead runs to compare to each other. They're legendary, and all worth getting, the boxed set or this pulled board. This one *could* be considered the "underdog", but who really cares?

The opening Other One stands up and practically *dares* you to compare it to any other rendering of the entire suite. The rest of the show really exists in the wake-explosion of this opening chaos - and it all serves it well. The quite-amazing Lovelight mirror-bookends it, Pigpen reminding us he's the real frontman, even though he's been completely absent all night!

Hey Jude? Well, it is endearingly what it is. Enjoy it.

I'm young and just got introduced to Greatful Dead and really like their music. I am trying to download this show. I see these links, but they are just opening html text files. Are these links that somehow plug into a torrent download? Confused on how to start the download. Thanks for your help.

Subject: JAW DROPPER
For any assholes out there that think The Dead played "wimpy dimpy hippie music"...play them this version of That's It for the Other One and they won't believe their ears...if they can even handle it! hahahaha! One of the most ferocious pieces of music ever performed, by any band.

Not to mention the New Potato Caboose is one of the greatest and most unique versions, even if it's not perfect. Phil is absolutely ON FIRE! such a great opening combo - maybe the best ever!

I don't find the 2nd set quite as compelling (the eleven is REALLY hot but way too short) but this is still an amazing show and one of the best of year.

Infinity stars for The Other One!

Subject: Very Interesting Show
I love the Dark Star on this. It's very interesting, kind of like New Potato Caboose with those sudden changes in the jam. I think where the 2/27 one is really ferocious and the 2/28 version has a more laid back approach, this one is the best because it's both ferocious and mellow. The New Potato is great of course. I love hearing what Phil plays during Jerry's guitar solo towards the end. So now I have all of the disks. Never thought I'd say that. Wow. Thanks, rosemary.

Subject: Top 3 show
I am not going to go off about how good this show is. Words will not do. This is what Hopper and Fonda should have been looking for in their movie. I wish there was video.

And now the negative rant. Wasn't only like 2 or 3 songs from this show put on the release? I don't like it when they bust up these great shows. I wish I could have this, 2/13&14/70, & 4/29/71 all complete and in order. My tapes of these shows are gone & the commercial releases just aren't the same.

this is one of the first shows i ever got a copy of. i just heard the released version for the first time the other day and it was everything i remembered and more. i only had one regret. my old tape had this pretty awful hiss and i kind of miss that during the "mountains of the moon" it gave it more of an ethereal quality that i think i liked better than the purer sound on the release. wish i could find that tape.

This show is outstanding, from the time first few notes of Crytical Envelopement thunder into your eardrums, till the surprise Hey Jude finale they don't let up, and they don't disappoint. This is part of the amazing <---(and I would even underline that if I could for further emphasis)Fillmore West box set. I've made it a goal of mine to spread it around to as many people as possible, so if you need it email me BushofArabia87@aol.com Trade or blanks, doesn't matter to me

Like all have said, monumental Other One- but the most remarkable thing is it is the first song of the first sit and it BLISTERS

If anyone knows another Dead set opener in their history that rips better than this one, let me know.

Subject: Top show of 69
I haven't heard every show from this year, but I've heard most of what's available in good quality.

This is a top shelf version of virtually every song played, and I don't say that lightly. How many concerts can you actually say that about? Maybe 5/2/70. It kicks off with a rocking Other One. I won't argue with those who call this the best ever, though speaking of 5/2/70 I happen to like that version better but not by much. Cosmic Charlie just jumps out of the speakers at you. Unbelievable Dark Star...if you're a fan of this version don't forget to check out the one on 3/2/69, I think it's slightly better and has been underappreciated.

If I have one niggle it's the short version of The Eleven, one of my favorite songs of this era.

I don't want to comment on how wonderful this show is, the other reviews speak enough, and this show is amazing, but Hey Jude was probably first performed on 2/11/69. It's on the Multitrack release.

This is the 1st version.
Kinda out of tune sounding,a little rough,but it was an encore and they probally forgot to tune up again,plus Pigpen is singin out of key.
But this is the goods.
Brent played this song once in Canada 3.22.90.
If you have a collection you should have this and the Canada show

Subject: still amazing...
I went to this show and it was a life changer... Never thought about music the same way again. It felt like Jerry and Phil were channeling the music from on high, making it up on the fly second by second. Yes, I was pretty high, but this music was magical! I remember during the "Dark Star", I was looking up at the gold lame ceiling and it felt like the room had elevated and was spinning off into space like a rocket ship. I can actually pinpoint the spot where that happened to me... LOL.

The funny thing is it was just another 3 band show at the Carousel with Pentangle playing before the Dead, sitting around on chairs. Though it was an awesome night, surely didn't think then this would go down in history as one of the best GD shows ever.

Great show! First and second set are both amazing. This one deserves your full attention. New Potato is great- in the middle (~5:25) Phil breaks into a really familiar classical jam (if anyone knows what it is called, please post it, I'm DYING to know) that will blow your mind. It's difficult for me to listen to without breaking in a large grin. Great energy channeled effortlessly from musicians at a peak performance. Must have for all Dead fans (or any fan of good music), esp. those of us partial to '69 Dead.

Always been one of my favorites. Pretty much a great example of every song played. Very nice conversion from Stephen to The Eleven. Fantastic Other One, Dark Star, Doin That Rag... This was one of the first shows I ever got, and man was I lucky. I liked it so much I lost it a couple years ago, and its really great to get my hands on it again. Fantastic show.

This is simply one of the best Grateful Dead shows that you can take the time to download. Excellent sound quality meets outstanding performance. This show is a long flight through the depths of space full of Hunter's musings in the midst of the void. Garcia is the propulsion on this show, but all hands are on board for this amazing piece of Dead history.

A superb show. For the most part they never even stopped playing between songs, a classic st. stephen that goes right through the eleven into a rediculous lovelight. What impressed me most was a solid Hey Jude for an encore.
People need to hear a show like this, 5 stars not only to this show but archive.org as well
